All images are first opened in Adobe Camera Raw or Capture One, where adjustments are made to balance exposure levels and any needed color correction is completed. Images are then exported to Photoshop, where final adjustments are made before saving a large TIFF master file. Individual images used to create a finished panorama are first opened in Kolor Autopano Pro for stitching, before completing the above process. Each image print order is first sized to exact print order size specification, before being saved as a new print master file, and then uploaded to the photo lab for printing. Individual files are typically much larger than 100 MB, resulting in exceptional quality through all print sizes.
